Before I even get started on this months Birchbox, I just want to thank anyone who continues to read my blog. My photos, my style and everything about my blog seem to be changing on a weekly basis. I've become bored of my over-exposed, over white and overly put together photos. I'm still trying to figure out my photo style and also figuring out how I like my photos to be edited without going over the top. I would just like to say thank you if you've been sticking with me, I kinda feel like my blog is a teenager that is going through the "awkward" purple eye shadow stage, yaaa know. Anywhoo, I still want to put content out there. 

Moving on. I decided to sign up to Birchbox after seeing everyone rave about this months box. Well, to be honest, I didn't sign up, my partner signed up for me (to shut me up, so he could watch football obvs) but regardless to whom may have signed up, I've got it. Long story short here's what I got in this months Birchbox. If you don't know what Birchbox is, read more about it here.

The first thing in my box is This works deep sleep pillow spray. The full size of this product retails at £16. I love anything like this, I'm that girl that puts lavender oil in my bath, in my diffuser and all over the house purely just to feel a little "zen". I'm all about relaxation, after having my 5-month-old daughter screaming all day there is nothing better than a glass of Prosecco and anything that suggests I will get a better night sleep. I don't even care if this kind of product is gimmicky, I loveeeee it.

This hair serum should come with a warning... No seriously, I caught annoying girlfriend syndrome after using this hair oil. I wouldn't stop banging on about how soft my hair was and telling Robbie (my partner) to feel how soft my hair was every 5 minutes. I already want this in full size. It left my hair feeling silky soft without leaving any sticky residue. I can honestly say hands down this serum is the best I've tried in a long time. I also want to try the reconstruction masque by Number 4 after using this.

I don't want to be that blogger that is like yes, I love everything, but... I really do love this. I will 100% be purchasing the full sized version. Rituals hammam body mud is an exfoliator and I don't find that it exfoliates particularly well or anything the main reason I have fallen in love with this is because it feels so refreshing. You know when you use a caffeine shampoo and you get that cold tingling feeling, this kinda feels like that but all over your body. When you get out the shower it feels really cold, but in a satisfying, I'm squeaky clean sort of way. Trying this has completely convinced me to test out some more products from Rituals. This product retails at £14 and I was pleasantly surprised, I kind of had it in my mind that Rituals was a really pricey brand.

This also come in this month's BirchboxLoc Millie in Bohemian rose, The shade is beautiful and it felt smooth and creamy when I swatched it on my hand but I'm a sucker for a nude. I've not reached for this once since discovering it in my Birchbox and it is kind of a shame because it does look really pretty but I always reach for a nude lippy over this. Perhaps when summer comes I may get more use out of it? It retails at £9 which I think is pretty reasonable.

This Doux me pure spring mist was something in my box that I really wasn't bothered by. Essentially it is water in a spray bottle. I just thought this should have been in a summer box. However, I'm not going to lie although I definitely pre-judged this and was really skeptical about it, I've kinda become a little obsessed with this, I actually love spraying this over my face after I've washed it. I feel like it is really refreshing and actually more hydrating than I first expected. I wouldn't say this is an essential but if you fancy a little treat/pick me up I find this does the trick. It retails at £16 which probably is on the pricey side for what it is but I'm not going to lie its one of them guilty pleasure kinda products.. you know the ones you don't really know if it does much but it makes you feel good.

 The last thing I got in my Birchbox was Trilogy vital moisturizing cream. I really like the feeling of this cream, it leaves me skin feeling soft and hydrated. The only problem with it is, it feels heavy under my foundation and whenever I've used it under foundation I have always found it doesn't sit well. I believe it retails at £24.50. I don't think I will be purchasing this item in the future.

Overall I was really happy with the products inside my box this month. Let me know your thoughts on Birchbox, are you thinking about signing up? Are you already signed up, whatever it is let me know.



  1. I never really get the hype with beauty subscription boxes as I hate having lots of samples adding up but I have to admit this looks like a great box and there's some fab products inside. I especially love the look of the Loc Millie lipsticks, a gorgeous rose shade would be a fave of mine x

    Beauty with charm

    1. I'm the same but after seeing this months box I just had to! It's gorgeous I just love a nude lipstick! X

  2. I would love to try the hair serum. My hair feels stiff and frizzy and I would love to feel it soft for once. I have been using lots of hair products but the results are only temporarily.
    I must admit that this box has great products!


    1. The hair serum is amazing! I will definetly be purchasing the full size!

  3. I always love your blog themes! They're always so chic and elegant.
